Physical-web by google
The Physical Web is an approach to unleash the core superpower of the web: interaction on demand. People should be able to walk up to any smart device - a vending machine, a poster, a toy, a bus stop, a rental car - and not have to download an app first. Everything should be just a tap away.

The objective of APIs.json is to help fix this problem by making it easy for people to signpost where the APIs on a given domain are and provide information on how they work. The format is simple and extensible and can be put into any web root domain for discovery.

Secure Your REST API... The Right Way | Stormpath
We already showed you how to build a Beautiful REST+JSON API, but how do you secure your API? At Stormpath we spent 18 months researching best practices, implementing them in the Stormpath API, and figuring out what works. Here’s our playbook on how to secure a REST API.

Liskov substitution principle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Substitutability is a principle in object-oriented programming. It states that, in a computer program, if S is a subtype of T, then objects of type T may be replaced with objects of type S (i.e., objects of type S may be substituted for objects of type T) without altering any of the desirable properties of that program (correctness, task performed, etc.).

Origin of the @reply – Digging through twitter’s history | Anarchogeek
Twitter’s been around for over 6 years now, and it’s most of it’s early history has been forgotten. The amazing thing about twitter as a platform and community is that it’s evolution has come through it’s use. Through use, people together evolve new ways of communicating. The #hashtag, the retweet, the @reply, follow friday, trending topics, real time twitter search, explaining twitter trends, cc-ing users, etc… These were all creations of the user base, people tried out ideas and build them. Twitter the company later adopted the conventions of it’s community and formalized the tools.

This letting the community of users create, and then adopting the practices is critical to how Twitter’s grown to be such an amazing platform. It’s also why new efforts to deliver a ‘consistent experience‘ are a terrible idea and if they succeed will kill twitter’s future innovation.

Scripting News: Twitter is a Corporate API
Conclusion -- corporate APIs are good for the corporations that own them, and pretty much bad for everyone else. I would be reluctant to develop on any corporate API unless I was prepared to have my work completely deleted or obviated or usurped by the platform vendor. You really don't have any power. However it's pretty much impossible to avoid them. But try to. And don't be a crybaby when you get hurt. permalink

A tweet filtering proxy with Node.JS: Part 1 | Guillermo Rauch's Devthought
The technique I’m going to describe consists in setting up a proxy to the Twitter API that lives in our computer, powered by Node.JS, that filters back responses based on arbitrary rules we setup. Not only does this give us the flexibility of using JavaScript, but it also means it will work with any Twitter client that leverages the API transparently. Yes, this includes the Twitter website!

APIs are a Pain
I would love to see every API to be RESTful, consistent, hypertext driven, and more importantly, interoperable. The reality is that getting consistent APIs is hard – particularly those that are done by distributed teams. For the record – I vehemently hate SOAP APIs and the SOAP mindset. I dislike RPC-style operation names tunneled over HTTP. I frown and cringe whenever I see unnecessary custom headers and complicated formats. I wish POST+XML goes away. I wish every API gets rewritten to the modern understanding of HTTP and REST, serving JSON.

But I would rather spend my time enabling interoperability than preaching for consistency.

If you get the idea, go ahead and skip ahead to the documentation below. If you don't get, let me explain why it might be the most useful way of thinking about #Occupy.

Nick Bradbury: The Long-Term Failure of Web APIs
But we've also learned that while web APIs enable us to tap into a wealth of data, they can only be relied upon in the short term. The expiration date of software we create has been shortened due to the whims of those who create the web APIs we rely on.

IMO, this goes for almost anything with net-based DRM, as well.

"Anyway, here’s the question I want to put into the reader’s mind: should one spend time and effort making a frontend into an informal API through microformats, or to instead spend it on building a fully supported API or data publishing system that exists and operates separately? I think my stance is clear - i’m not against the theory of microformats, but i’m certainly going to differ with anyone who thinks it’s practical."

REST APIs must be hypertext-driven » Untangled
"What needs to be done to make the REST architectural style clear on the notion that hypertext is a constraint? In other words, if the engine of application state (and hence the API) is not being driven by hypertext, then it cannot be RESTful and cannot be a REST API. Period. Is there some broken manual somewhere that needs to be fixed?"

Dare Obasanjo aka Carnage4Life - Explaining REST to Damien Katz
"At this point, the benefits of building RESTful services for the Web should be self evident. The Web has a particular architecture and it makes sense that if you are deploying a service or API on the Web then it should take advantage of this architecture instead of fighting against it. There are millions of deployed clients, servers and intermediaries that support REST and it makes sense to be compatible with their expectations. "
